Keloid scar



Almost all of us have scars. Some eventually heal and fade, while others take on a life of their own. A keloid is scar tissue that has grown excessively over the wound and creates a large smooth lump.


They are most commonly found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks. However, keloids can affect any part of the body. And if you have a keloid(s), don’t worry, they are quite common.

Keloid scars tend to be larger than the original wound itself. They may take weeks or months to develop fully. While keloid scars may be itchy, they’re usually not harmful to your health.


You may experience discomfort, tenderness, or possible irritation from your clothing or other forms of friction. In rare instances, you may experience keloid scarring on large areas of your body, which can sometimes restrict movement.
